Born in Southern region of West Africa, Fumi emigrated to the United States of America over thirty years ago. The Back Story to her collections is derived from a Jewish teenager named "Hadassah", an orphan who later became Queen Esther.
Princess Fumi's (an authentic African Royalty) passion for designing clothes began when she was 12 years old. It is her believe that every woman deserves to experience a taste of couture at affordable pricing. She states that women desire to be classy and alluring. Her personal motto is this: Every Woman is a Princess. And her fashion line dares woman to be bold, elegant, youthful, alluring, and edgy.
This life story is the backdrop of Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock’s, The Princess of Suburbia Collection. She dresses women so elegantly, alluringly, with sophistication but more importantly, she helps women make bold statement with their dressing styles… a legacy statement she is most certainly proud of. Vibrant colors are never to be shied away from! They exude confidence and strength; they empower and inspire! The Princess of Suburbia implores women, regardless of age, to dare dream by making bold statements with their dressing, no matter the race, the occasion, the season, and/or life experience.
